Geragos Wants Charges Against Peterson Dropped

Sponsored by:

Scott Peterson´s lawyer is seeking dismissal of double-murder charges against his client.

Defense attorney Mark Geragos argues in court papers filed yesterday that Modesto police failed to conduct a thorough investigation of Laci Peterson´s disappearance last Christmas Eve and in his words, “decided that their job was to put Scott Peterson on Death Row.”

Geragos will formally ask a judge at a January 14th court hearing to throw out the charges that Scott Peterson killed his pregnant wife and their unborn son. Peterson´s trial is scheduled to start on January 26th. Stanislaus County prosecutors have no comment on the defense motion.

Meanwhile, Laci Peterson´s family is encouraging Modesto area residents to mark the first anniversary of her reported disappearance tomorrow by donating blood.
